Answer

Vitamins, Water-Soluble

Pyridoxine may be effective in seizures that are refractory to the medications already discussed. It is essential for normal deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) synthesis and cell function.

Pyridoxine (Aminoxin, Pyri-500)

Pyridoxine should be tried in patients not responding to the above regimen. Patients with pyridoxine-dependent seizures may respond immediately to pyridoxine.
